Re: Official Sebastian Vettel thread

Vettel is the prototypical German. Give him pole position and he'll carefully guide these tyre conservation machines (F1 race cars) across the line first more times than not. Vettel's strength isn't challenging a better car in inferior equipment and that's probably why we saw more mistakes from him...

Vettel ahead, slightly. Mainly due to his advantage at the beginning of the season as Charles takes some time adjusting to a new team and new car.

Re: Would Hamilton in the Ferrari have beat Hamilton in the

Given Hamilton is just a driver, and Ferrari have bigger problems than just their driver making silly mistakes, I’d say Hamilton wouldn’t have been able to win the title in the Ferrari. The car was just faster, slightly, during the first half of the season. The race strategy team does a great job of...
